Re:surf in texas? - 2009/01/08 07:00 Hey - I am a fellow Saffa but im stuck all the way up in Dallas. Just got back from SA with a new board and Im keen on giving Galveston a go as its only a 4.5 hr drive.. Have you been out there yet? Im hoping I can get some decent surf somewhere in the Gulf.. just had 3 epic weeks in the Eastern Cape. Anyway, let me know, maybe we can plan a session sometime, I dont know anyone that side.
Cheers.

Re:surf in texas? - 2009/01/10 13:55 what up, I shape boards in ca and have surf in texas along repping the boards. you are in luck.
Every little cold front that come thru makes waves. Typically the wind will blow real hard out of the southeast for a few days and the surf will build each day . when the front hits, the wind will blow offshore for a few hours and then side shore to onshore. SO YOU GOT TO BE ON IT!! Typical size: knee to overhead depending on how long and hard the wind blows onshore. Summer has the hurricanes and they are very fickle but insane surf can be had. The swell is very short lived so again you got to be on it!! Best thing is NO Whitey larking , if the surf is bad you can fish in the surf or in the bays and fishing is world class. Houston and the whole gulf coast has killer food., you will be amazed.
Place to surf , [piers and jetties beach breaks
Galveston; Freeport, surfside, Matagorda closest best break from Houston, Corpus Christy, good waves,- try bob hall pier and the fish pass. And south Padre has the best surf in Texas. winter a fullsuit in galveston and trunks everywhere else just about anytime.

Remember Mexico, Ca. the east coast are all a 2 hour flight for about 200.00 usd. and costa, nic are about 4 hrs a way , hawaii be as low as 459.00 usd
If you need boards i would be stoke to shape the SA some boards. come to cal stop by the shop.
